Lopez's longtime manicurist Tom Bachik says he was inspired by her "very edgy and sexy black-and-gold Versace outfit. I wanted her nails to have a similar edgy look, but be clean at the same time since her outfit was so ornate."

To start, the L'Oreal Paris global nail artist shaped the star's nails into a modern almond shape. "Next, I applied L'Oreal Paris Extraordinaire Gel-Lacque in Glossed & Found ($7.99), a high-gloss black shade," he says. Of course, leaving no detail unattended to, Bachik finished by applying the same polish on her toes. Once again, perfect, head to toe.
